    Travellers will get to know a bit our culture in Rio Grande do Sul, will meet nice people, will also learn a lot about teaching methods since they can also observe classes and learn how our school works. We work with communicative aproach, so there's a lot of speaking in our classes and extra-class programs. We have around 200 students, so having this experience is a great way to make new friend as well.
